This is an Ozone Ultralite 4, built in September 2017, and only flown for 10 minutes – it is as new. It comes with standard risers and is the lightest double surface wing you can get.
It’s gorgeous to fly, but I am not going to use it for my planned cycling/flying trips due to a knee injury. I don’t live near any big mountains either!
The wing will be shipped from the UK, where I live, by courier, to anywhere in Europe or North America. The price of shipping is not included in the price.
The UL4 offers enough performance to thermal, ridge soar, or even go XC with security and comfort. Our aim whilst designing it was to increase the performance, speed, and agility of its predecessors without compromising the safety, durability or pack volume. Its reduced weight is a result of a modern sail construction using an intelligent mix of 27g Porcher Skytex, Dominico N20D, and Dominico N10D, which have a proven track record of longevity.
The new profile, internal structure, and riser design allows the wing to reach a higher top speed with improved efficiency throughout the speed range, thanks to 3D shaping. A 14% reduction in overall line drag and optimised leading edge openings have also improved efficiency. The planform remains similar to its predecessor, with the same low aspect ratio – this maintains comfort and ease of use, and is the foundation of the Ultralite’s exceptional safety behaviour. The risers feature extended speed range, and low-friction rings for additional weight savings.
The Ultralite 4 is suitable for pilots from beginner-intermediate to expert, and a wide range of pilot weights. The Ultralite 4 is designed for hike and fly pilots and anyone who is keen to own a second wing for easy travelling. Although it is a full sized wing in the air, the Ultralite’s extremely light weight and compact design folds into an almost pocket size, meaning that you can take it with you anywhere, anytime. Imagine fitting your glider, harness, reserve parachute and helmet all under the seat in front of you or in the overhead compartment on your next vacation!
